Looking to find Dogfish brews in your neck of the woods? We currently sell in 36 U.S. states plus Washington D.C., although we hope to add more someday! Select your brew of choice, enter your zip code and we will tell you where it has been delivered in the past 60 days. But wait! Before you hop in your ride and drive to pick up that elusive Dogfish you see on the screen, please, please call ahead to confirm availability. Just because a beer has been delivered doesn’t mean it is still on the shelves or that the keg has been tapped.

Here is the list of where we currently have wholesalers.
